Trouble with SSIs

In Dreamweaver 8 I was able to write and insert SSIs without trouble. Now I'm using CS6 and...

 

(1) I can't find where the "insert SSI" is located; it's not in the "insert" dropdown menu (which is where online help sites say it is), nor can I find it anywhere else. 

(2) Although my previously-created SSIs show up in both the "design" and "live" views, they are all absent from my actual website, i.e. they are not showing up.

 

It's important to mention that I just switched hosting companies, so I will be in touch with them about the live version too.

 

I have a small, pretty lowtech personal site, and am not especially adept in web design (perhaps that's obvious!). Any easy-to-understand suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Creative Suite 6 is discontinued.  Are you sure you're not using Creative Cloud?

Insertion of SSIs got dropped from DW when Server Behavior Panels were deprecated.

 

I created my own SSIs in my custom Snippets folder.

 

PHP SSI (.php files only)

<?php require_once('folder/filename.html'); ?>

 

VIRTUAL SSI (.shtml, .shtm or .asp files)

<!--#include virtual="../folder/filename.html" -->

 

It goes without saying, your hosting plan must support the server-side language you're using.
